    Personally I think you both need to go away.  It's getting really old.

    I agree, it's getting old. I'm not taking part in his games any further. Thanks for the wake up call!

    For users experiencing this drainage issue, go to this website



    It pretty much summarizes everything anyone said here.


    Most of these "fixes" don't work. Some work only temporarily.


    The answer is: Wait for the update. It MAY be fixed there. It's worth going through this website so if one of these solves it temporarily at least you can do that over and over if it gets too bad. Other than that, we are screwed until they fix it.

    Please go away now!  We've had enough of your all seeing, all knowing, only you know the answers B.S.


    The problem is not just the software update!  It's a certain combination of the 6.1.3 update, settings, firmware and features / apps.  It has only affected a very small percentage of users.  If it was just the 6.1.3 update that you repeatedly claim is the problem then this would be the biggest tech news story in years (remember 'antennagate'?).  The current estimate is that over 200,000,000 IOS devices have been updated to 6.1.3.  So if it was only 6.1.3  causing this problem then every IOS device owner would be screaming bloody murder about poor battery life.  But here we are on only page 50 of an Apple forum thread on this issue in over a month of postings!  If all 6.1.3 updated devices had the issue this forum would be so overloaded it would likely be crashing the servers.


    By the way we would probably only be on page 40 if you take out all your repetative, condesending, ranting, trolling posts!  No need to reply as I will be ignoring anything else posted by you.

    I beg to differ.  Most iPhone users will not even be aware of forums such as this and will not know where to direct their complaints.  I suspect that many will think it's something that they have done and suffer in silence.

    Sorry but your not looking at the big picture.  If just 1% of IOS users had this issue there would be over 2,000,000 people with terrible battery life trying to figure out why.  That would definately make this thread (and all other forums) extremely active and primetime newsworthy.  Even if just 10% of the 1% affected (200,000+) decided to search for answers / fixes, this thread and others would be in overdrive. 


    A good example of this is the MacBook Pro retina screen image retention issue.  Dozens of forums about it including here.  The MBPr is produced in very small volume compared to IOS devices, approx 1,300,000 / year.  The image retention issue also only affects a small percentage of users yet the forum here had to be reset after over 500 pages were posted in just the first 2 months, it was bogging down the entire Apple forums site.  It has already gotten back up to over 500 pages again.  This issue has made news on the tech websites.  If you figure even more conservative guesstimates, assuming 10% affected units and 25% of those affected search for answers / fixes then that means only ~32,500 users have gotten more action than the potential millions with the 6.1.3 battery issue.  It's orders of magnitude different with IOS and the press always jumps on any potential IOS problems very quickly.


    For reference this thread has only had 91,000 views and 721 replies!  The MBPr thread (after being reset to zero) has 520,000 views and 7,700 replies.  and this is with less than 5% of potential number of effected devices than the IOS battery issue (my educated guess).

    There are several things to keep in mind:


    Those who suffer with the battery drainage issue, many will not even be aware because they don't regularly run their battery down and there are others who just aren't assertive enough to notice that their battery is suddenly running down a lot faster.


    Of those who do realise, most won't realise their issues are related to a recent update they performed and the few who do, I'd guess that the majority won't bother posting on forums.


    I believe this issue is effecting thousands of people but only seriously bothering a hand full. But looking at the big picture, it's likely still only a small-ish percentage of users.


    Out of all the iPhones I've owned (all of em), the iPhone 5 has had the most battery issues. Though likely all software related.

    Iphone 4s software 6.1.3 the same problem and apple denies to do anything to solve it. Lets hope samsung won't follow apple's strategy to ignore us!

    I accounted for that with very conservative estimates of 1% effected IOS units and if only 1 in 10 of those effected took action to find a solution.  It is still a massive number of users that would be heard by the press!

    I have an issue with my iPhone I go in to any Apple store and they fix or replace it, no questions asked.


    I had my S3 for several days and the paint on the silver bezel started to chip off. Samsung refused to repair the phone under warranty and claimed it wasn't a manufacturing defect.


    You'll never find better customer service than Apple IMO. Even if they don't publically acknowledge every issue.

    I am a new client for Iphone, just bought mine few days ago. I am so disapointed by the performmance of Iphone 5.

    Ihad blackberry before and had not problems of battery, nor I had problem with fetching emails that were coming instantly on my BB. I read all posts and I can see I am not the only one having battery issues.

    I fully charged my phone over night, turned it on at 9am and at 7pm, I had 19% remaining on my battery.

    Apple will have to seriously consider to resolve the problem or in few days, they will loose a client.

    Me who considered Apple the best, I have now seriously reconsider my position. And for info, the word spead very fast in my community.

    90% drain in 10h ... that sounds reasonable if you're using the device fully, i.e. with several apps being connected to whatever net service they use, possibly location services that hook into the GPS, etc.

    My 4s running 6.1.2 typically uses about 55-60% battery over the day (9 - 23h approx) but that's with mobile data off. When I'm out and switch mobile data on, drain increases, and IMHO that's inevitable.

    Has anyone else noticed that several posts have been deleted from yesterday afternoon?  Very odd....  There are at least 3 posts missing from this page; 1 each from Thai_iphone4, Papasan and myself.  Mine was the last post made here when I logged out last night and now that post as well as the one from Papasan which I had replied too are missing???
